Authorities are yet to make a decision as to the fate of the dingo, but it could mean the male pack leader is euthanised before the weekend.

An official response is being finalised by Queensland Parks and Wildlife in relation to the attack with euthanisation a strong possibility.

Ms Peet is still recovering from her injuries which included a deep laceration to her upper arm.
